Please note, this restaurant is going to change its name to Cilantro's. Same ownership, just new name. I had the shrimp tacos, they were excellent. This is one of the few restaurants in the area the serve sopapillas.

Living in the area for 14 years I've visited every Mexican restaurant in Kingwood and always return to Rico's. Visit once/twice a month. I've never had the experiences stated in these other negative reviews. Service is quick and friendly, consistently tasty food.

There are a number of better Mex and TxMex in Kingwood. Our food was cold, almost like the dish was not in the microwave long enough. Chips were stale, service was forgettable, drinks were weak. Other than that....
